Our pool is surrounded by trees and many of them are dropping seeds, catkins, and small leaves into the pool this time of year. Thunderstorms with high winds are expected tonight and tomorrow morning so I’m going to have to turn the pump off so the skimmer doesn’t get clogged and ruin the pump. It makes me nervous to do this because we have been slamming our pool and just passed the OCLT two days ago. Since the pump is going to be off for about 16 hours, should I increase the chlorine beyond my normal target level in case we get a lot of leaves in the pool? If I should, how much extra chlorine should I add? I’d also like to know if there is any kind of cheap manual vacuum I could buy to remove leaves and seeds on the bottom that doesn’t connect to the skimmer. The last time we had a storm during the spring, it took me 2 hours to get all of the leaves off the bottom of the pool with the net and manual vacuum, so I’d love to get something to make this job easier on my back. Unfortunately, we can’t afford to buy a pool cleaning robot at this time.
